Battles and Quests
Death and destruction, the world needs heroes. Arthur. Theseus. Geriguiaguiatugo. Their names are whispered on the wind – tales of epic quests, of furious battles, beasts slain and the glory of victory . . .
Beasts and Monsters
In the cold, dead eyes of the Banshee, and the hissing, spitting fangs of the Gorgon; in the fiery breath of the dragon and the razor sharp claws of the Sphinx – there is a thirst for blood and a murderous hunger. But it is a time of heroes, and the teeth and claws of these hideous beasts are no match for the lethal blades of such men . . .
Death and the Underworld
From the pen of master storyteller Anthony Horowitz comes a new series of myths and legends from around the world, retold in a contemporary voice, and illustrated with bold, graphic artwork. Packed with Horowitz's signature action, humor, and suspense these collections feel fresh, modern, and perfect for today's fast-moving audience. When life is over, and the conflicted souls of the dead wend their weary way down to the underworld, what do they see? A three-headed dog with slavering jaws, a bubbling swamp and a hangman's noose, or simply darkness? From familiar stories like the Greek myth of Orpheus, to lesser known tales like the Viking legend of the poet Nornagest and his precious candle, or the story of the Indian Princess Savitri who cheated death with nothing but her smarts, this collection is full of characters who are brave enough (or foolish enough) to cheat death and tell the tale.
Heroes and Villains
The battle between good and evil has raged throughout time, in every corner of this world and the next. The heroes and villains of this ancient conflict are many and varied. Some have fought using their superior strength, and some their wit and cunning. Others would triumph with speed, skill, or sheer determination, but they all had one thing in common: they would fight to the death . . .
